Open Government is a comprehensive compendium of the who, what, how, and why of the emergent national "Gov 2.0" movement; it's a must-read for all who care about transparent, efficient, and participatory government, which, by definition, should equate to each and every one of us in our capacity as citizens and voters.

We’re living in a world characterized by exponential change. Most government organizations weren’t built for this world. The movement from closed to open is one of the most important ways governments can adapt to faster change. Open Government offers insight on how to get from here to there. It should be required reading for anyone who cares about the future of the public sector.

Summary: Politicians, professors, pundits, and programmers come together to provide a multi-faceted and nonpartisan account of the history and future of government as it becomes more transparent, collaborative, and participatory.

The Obama presidential campaign was historic for many reasons, including it's unprecedented use of the Internet and Web 2.0 technologies.

Topics include: government as a platform, the argument for open source software, transparency, citizen journalism, visualizing political controversies, security and transparency, digital divide, history of the online gov't, and campaigning.
